Art prints are an inexpensive way to change things around in your home and add a pop of colour to an otherwise drab looking room. Frames don't need to be fancy as you don't want the frame to overshadow the art so Ikea or a good dollar store frame can change things up in a room without breaking the bank. You can frame 5"x7" art cards or an 8"x10" print (or larger) and just add one to a room or create a collage of art.
Expressing gratitude is something that many have seen the benefits of. We are hearing about its importance more and more. When you take the time to see and feel all that you have to be grateful for it can make the more negative things in life a lot less close. Expressing gratitude helps you bring in the good and expel the negative. Holding on to negative thoughts and feelings has a timeline but it needs to be able to exit just as quickly as it sets in. A gratitude journal can absolutely help with that. Taking the time to jot down a few things you are grateful for can make a huge difference to your life. Not only will it show you how truly fantastic your life is, it can change your thought pattern and you will become a more focused and positive person. A gratitude journal is for everyone. You don't have to be a person who is trying to get out of a rut to be more grateful. In a world where information is at our fingertips and life seems to pass faster and faster with each year expressing gratitude and documenting gratitude is a great way of remembering just how truly fantastic life is and how far you have evolved as a person. Evolving as a human being is something everyone needs to do regardless of what is happening in your life. Life changes every single second and, as human beings, we need to adapt to those changes. Journaling gratitude is a simple and time efficient way to help with that.
I watched a documentary the other day on youths sentenced to life in prison. It was a concrete wall outside the prison walls that inspired my newest art. The wall was a mix of different shades of whites, greys, cracks, creases and marks. A teenage boy, sentenced to life, stared at this wall every day. It made me wonder if he ever created images using the texture and cracks on the wall. Did he tell his secrets to the wall? Did this boy put up walls of protection? What I knew for sure was ... love lives beyond these walls.

Everyone I know with a sister always says they have no idea how anyone can live without a sister. I don't have a sister. I have a brother but I have many sister like friends who make that first statement rather believable. Here is some new art representing sisters.
